Maternity belts offer support for a pregnant woman's expanding belly. The belt is a simple design and wraps under the belly and uses simple loop and hook fasteners to secure it in place. According to Mayo Clinic reports, a maternity belt helps support the growing abdomen and relieves common low back pain. The belt may be worn in all stages of pregnancy and postpartum.
